Lunchtimes & School Meals

Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children eat lunch in the hall. All children enjoy time outdoors (unless the weather is particularly bad) in the main playground.  Our Nursery and Reception children eat together before the older children then return to Early Years to enjoy some time outdoors.

 We employ 4 lunchtime supervisory assistants to support children over the lunchtime period and our learning mentor also joins children on the playground to offer additional support.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. From September 2023, the cost of a school meal for nursery children is £2.35 and for all other children it is £2.55 per day. 

Please notify the school office two weeks prior if your child wishes to change from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa. Thank you.
